Aspyra, Inc. Receives FDA Clearance to Market AccessNET PACS with Mammography Viewing

Published: Mar 24, 2010

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aspyra, Inc. today announced that they have received FDA 510(k) marketing clearance for AccessNET, the Company’s PACS (Picture Archive Communication System) product with the capability to view digital mammography studies for diagnostic interpretation using FDA approved monitors. The AccessNET PACS will now include the display of mammography CAD results, the IHE conformant hanging protocols, and other display capabilities for digital mammography studies.

This capability introduces the potential for economic savings to facilities performing digital mammograms, as they can now view and interpret results using existing FDA-compliant workstations with the same workflow as all other studies. There is no longer a need to purchase and maintain a separate workstation just for viewing and interpreting mammograms. Additionally, integration with the on-board functionality of the Matrox Xenia card provides significant performance and quality improvements using high resolution displays and images required for mammography.

The Aspyra AccessNET PACS with its mammography viewing capability offers radiologists the benefit of increased efficiency. Bill Culton, Aspyra’s Diagnostic Solutions Product Manager, states, “Our integrated PACS viewing solution with digital mammography capabilities allows for a more streamlined workflow for the radiologist.” He continued, “This enables more timely interpretation and diagnosis, and lessens the chance of errors or lost studies by keeping it all within one system.”

“This added capability of mammography viewing is part of Aspyra’s ongoing enhancement of its PACS solution,” reported Ade Lawal, CEO of Aspyra. “We are committed to helping our customers achieve optimal workflow efficiency, so they can better focus on the business of taking care of patients.” Other recent enhancements target performance improvement for accessing and reading radiological images. These include more intelligent compression for transferring images and dictations from remote locations, improvements in the navigation and functionality of commonly used imaging tools, and support for management of critical results.
